Crimes involving illegal drugs or substances in Florida are punished severely, and may include the possession of drugs and/or drug paraphernalia to selling, manufacturing, or even trafficking controlled substances including heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, or even prescription drugs such as oxycodone. At Adams & Luka, we understand that it is all too easy for someone who is suspected of possession to face more serious charges, such as possession with intent to deliver or distribute depending on the amount of substance in a person's possession. Police and prosecutors are vigilant in their efforts to secure an arrest and conviction. If you have been arrested or are under investigation, we urge you to contact a Leesburg drug crimes attorney with our firm immediately.
There is no questions that the number of drug crimes across the U.S. has grown tremendously in recent years; however, police are tasked with attempting to reduce these crimes, regardless of what tactics they have to use to secure an arrest. Investigators often set up undercover stings; in some cases, police may perform an illegal search of a suspect's property. However, those who are suspected of drug offenses have specific legal rights that must be protected. In our country, every defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Our criminal defense lawyers are dedicated to obtaining good results for our clients; our winning track record supports our ability to secure a positive outcome.

In Florida and in most other states, the criminal penalties for a drug crime conviction are severe, and may include substantial fines, prison time, and other sanctions. The penalties you face if found guilty depend on the type of substance involved, the amount, any prior criminal drug conviction, and other factors. Where the alleged offense took place is another factor, as conducting any use or selling of illegal substances within close proximity of a school, park, church, or public/community facility may result in enhanced penalties.
